Abstract

The assembly (1) has a self-locking collar (3) whose locking head (7) receives notched strips (5) of the collar passed in reverse directions. Serrations (9) of one of the strips engage with other strip or notched portion of the head. The strips are locked one against other or against the notched portion along a passage direction. Each of the collars has hooks (13) integrated to the strips or the head and engaged in a complementary grip portion of an object e.g. IPN section, or piece, during the displacement of the strips in reverse directions. A locking collar (23) engages with another object.

Description

The invention relates to an assembly of self-locking collars for the connection of parts, the corresponding self-locking collars and the application of this assembly. The self-locking collars made of plastic material, especially polyamide, whose band provided with teeth is passed and retained in a clamping head by a corresponding tooth portion of the head are known. Clamping is performed on the tooth portion in a non-return way of the direction of passage of the strip due to the inclination of the teeth in opposition to the band and the tooth portion in the head. The aim of the invention is to assemble such self-locking collars in order to obtain new applications for fastening or connecting parts or objects relative to one another. It is indeed proposed according to the invention an assembly of at least two self-locking band collars provided with teeth or notches in at least one corresponding clamping head, characterized in that at least one of the collar clamping heads is capable of to receive the two collar strips passed one in the opposite direction of the other, the teeth of a band engaging the teeth of the other band or the teeth of a tooth part of the head, the strips being clamped against each other or against the tooth portion in the clamping head in one possible direction of passage, each of said self-locking collars further comprising at least one fastening means or hook secured to their band or head clamping device and adapted to come into engagement engagement in a complementary socket portion of at least a first object or piece, to move the strips in opposite directions from each other, said assembly further comprising at least one element commitment at least one second object or piece.

Said assembly thus makes it possible in particular to connect a first object or part to a second object or part. Said assembly advantageously comprises two hooks vis-à-vis and able to be moved towards each other (or the opposite with a notch in the opposite direction) with the displacement of the bands in the opposite direction one of the other, which allows a clamping of the hooks on the first object or part. Said assembly of said at least two clamps generally comprises two clamping heads, each attached to a self-locking collar and in which are passed the clamping bands one in the opposite direction of the other. Nevertheless, it suffices for a clamping head of one of the self-locking collars to ensure the connection of the strips to each other in reverse movement from one another in the head. The second clamping head can be deleted. Likewise, the conventional one or more toothed part of the head which engages the teeth of the conventionally looped band may also be omitted. Indeed, the displacement link in reverse of the other bands in the head is achieved by the engagement of the teeth of the bands opposite one another preferably without the assistance of said portion of teeth , this engagement being carried out over the length of at least one clamping head and therefore over a considerably greater length than that conventional of the toothing portion of the head on the strip. The link of reverse movement or anti-return bands for clamping said hooks on the first object or part can be rigid and a high level of maintenance. Said self-locking collars of the assembly are advantageously identical or close so that the strips are applied one over the other over their width in the one or more clamping heads and therefore in an optimal non-return clamping grip. Said hooks engaging on the first object or part are advantageously formed on each of the clamping heads of the clamps, the most rigid portion thereof, so that the clamping connection to said first object or part is all the more rigid .

Said hooks may have a variable shape adapted to the complementary taking part of the first object or part. Said first object or part may also have a variable shape and be of variable consistency, hard to tender so that said assembly can be mounted on various parts, for example a flat of a metal section (the hooks coming into engagement with each other). else of the dish at its edges) or a wooden beam, the hooks being adapted to come and hold on to the beam, in the wood, on both sides of it.

Said engagement element to the second object or part may also be variable, may be, for example, at least one passer or ring integral with a clamping head and adapted to receive another object holding collar, cable (s). ) or tube (s), for example, or a hook element adapted to support the second object or piece, for example a simple hook receiving the handle of a bucket or a quick-setting lug on a staple. The invention also relates to the set of at least two self-locking collars, characterized in that the self-locking collars are adapted to make one with the other an assembly of collars as mentioned above, able to be connected to a first object or piece by means of at least two hooks tight clamps vis-à-vis the part or object and be connected to at least a second object or piece by at least one. gripping element integral with the collars, and the various applications of said assembly of collars.

The invention is illustrated below with the aid of exemplary embodiments and with reference to the appended drawings, in which: FIG. 1 is a perspective view of a self-locking collar of the assembly of collars according to FIG. FIG. 2 is a perspective view of an assembly of self-locking collars according to the invention, FIG. 3 is an elevational view of an assembly of self-locking collars according to the invention, fastened to a metal profile of the type [FIG. Upper PN and connected to a lower tube, - Figures 4a and 4b show the cooperation of the collar strips in one of the clamping heads of the collars according to two possible embodiments, and - Figures 5 and 6 show examples of fixing parts. With reference to the figures, FIGS. 1 and 2 in particular, an assembly of self-locking collars 1 according to the invention comprises two identical single self-locking collars 3 (FIG. 1) whose notched strips are passed one over the other and in the direction inverse of each other (according to arrows in Figure 2) in each of the clamping heads 7. The toothed strips 5 slide on one another (Figure 4a), the notches 9 of a band 5 jumping on the notches 9 of the other band 5 (according to arrows), while the clamping heads 7 are close to one another. The opposite direction of movement of the strips 5 for the spacing of the clamping heads is prevented because of the inclination of the notches 9 of the bands which come into engagement with each other in the opposite direction and thus forbid the reverse movement or return tapes on the heads. The catching or tightening of the strips 5 one on the other is performed on the two clamping heads 7, over the length thereof and therefore over a much larger length than that of a tape tap conventional loop of the collar by the conventional notching part 1 1 from 1 to 3 notches of the clamping heads. In this case, this detent portion 11 serves as a pressure element for applying the strips 5 to one another. The notching of the strips 5 to one another is therefore very rigid. Each of the heads 7 comprises an upper hook 13 whose nose 14 C-shaped (identical) allows the grip on the flat 15 of a profile 17 of the IPN type. In the assembly of collars, the noses 14 are turned towards each other in opposition, which allows the grip on the opposite edges of the flat 15. The heads 7 being integral, (attached to) each of a 5, the non-return movement of the strips 5 or in opposite directions from one another also moves the heads 7 towards each other until the hooks 1.3 are engaged in opposition at the edges opposite the flat profile IPN 17. The traction on the bands 5 causes the clamping hooks 13 in opposition on the flat 15 recoil possible. Clamping can be done manually with cutting of the band portions protruding from each side of the heads, or by a tool (not shown) to achieve a firmer clamping. This provides a tight attachment of the assembly of collars on the IPN profile. The clamping heads 7 each comprise at their lower part a bridge or flat ring 19 (Figures 3 and 5) receiving the band 21 of a clamping collar 23. The two heads therefore receive two clamps 23, which can receive Tightly and in suspension a tube 25 as shown in Figure 3. Naturally, the bridges 19 may be replaced by any other fastening element or grip and for example straps, hooks, etc.. allowing the taking of an object or a piece. The heads 7 may also comprise a quick-release pin 27 to an automatic clip 29, mounted according to arrow (FIG. 6) by a complementary socket bushing 31 on the pin 27. The assembly of the self-locking clamps according to the invention thus makes it possible to an easy and fast grip to an object 17 or a piece, simply by bringing the gripping elements 13 of the heads 7 onto the object 17 or the piece, to the complementary parts of the object. It allows a tight and rigid grip to it, possibly at multiple points of the object or part by having several clamping heads on the same band self-locking collar, and an easy connection to an object 25 or other objects or parts on the clamping heads 7.

Naturally, the notching of the bands of the collars could be inclined in the opposite direction so that one could obtain a connection to an object not by clamping the fastening means or hooks but by spacing them.

In addition, each of the heads of the collars can receive a band 5 engaged on its part of toothing 11, as shown in FIG. 4b, so that the disassembly of the assembly is possible by passing a blade 12, for example a screwdriver. , or even the fingernail of a finger between the band 5 and the tooth portion 11, to allow release of the grip of the band 5 on the tooth portion 11
